Phytoremediation, collectively referring to all species-based technologies using green plants to remediate and rehabilitate municipal solid waste landfill sites, has emerged as a potential candidate. Phytoextraction using hyper accumulating plants is seen as a promising technique; a lack of understanding of the basic physiological, biochemical, and molecular mechanisms involved in the removal of heavy metal from environment. The discovery of hyper accumulator plants, which contain high levels... Topics: Phytoremediation, Biochemical, Phytoextraction.
This book covers the fundamentals of the rapidly growing field of biothermodynamics , showing how thermodynamics can best be applied to applications and processes in biochemical engineering. It describes the rigorous application of thermodynamics in biochemical engineering to rationalize bioprocess development and obviate a substantial fraction of this need for tedious experimental work. As such, this book will appeal to a diverse group of readers, ranging from students and professors in... Topics: Biothermodynamics, Thermodynamics, Biochemical, Engineering
A study was carried out in Bilaspur to assess the extent of chemical pollution in a receiving ground water as affected by industrial effluents. Some industrial area were analyzed for pH, dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand, electrical conductivity, suspended solids, nitrate, alkalinity, total dissolved solids, hardness, chloride, fluoride and phosphate in the dry and rainy seasons. The results showed that the effluents were alkaline. While the levels of dissolved oxygen, biological... Topics: Biochemical Oxygen Demand, Chemical Pollution, Industrial effluents .
A total of 458 samples were collected during 2012, distributed in urine, blood, sputum, swabs from wound infection and swabs from burn. The results revealed that 11 (2.4%) isolates obtained belonged to Acinetobactr baumannii. which were collected from various clinical samples distributed in blood 1 (0.93%), urine 2 (1.44%), wound infection 2 (3.12%) and burn 6 (6.25%). These isolates were identified by using microscopic examination, biochemical tests,... Topics: A. baumannii, Oryctylagus conniculus, Biochemical Tests
Rice is important food crop of the world. It is the staple food of more than 60 per cent of the world population. Results revealed that, majority of farmers (83.33%) have grown BPT-5204 paddy variety mainly due to its superfine quality and higher yield. Similarly, the biochemical properties like higher starch content (86%), optimum oil (2.70%), N(0.81%) contents in BPT-5204 might have favoured the acceptance of sona masuri by the farmers.Majority of traders opinioned that, moisture content was...
